Martyn, a business consultant discovered Shared Ownership is not just for first time buyers, when he purchased his brand new one bed apartment at the stunning, boutique development, Wharf Road in Islington.

Prior to purchasing his new home, Martyn was renting a property in Islington and wanted to remain in the same area he had become accustomed to. Purchasing through Shared Ownership allowed Martyn to get onto the property ladder in his ideal location and at the right price point.

“Given the financial criteria and area that I wanted to live in, Shared Ownership was the best option. I was able to put down a deposit at a fraction of the average price for London and get myself a mortgage for a property I love. I also feel more secure now that I own my own home. There is always an element of uncertainty when renting, so to know that this is mine is a great feeling."


Convenient, city-living at Wharf Road

Located in the central London borough of Islington, Wharf road is a stunning collection of high-end, spacious apartments. All properties benefit from their own unique layout, design and private outdoor space. Each apartment is finished with a high specification and distinctive qualities, including integrated appliances and grey oak timber flooring.

All apartments provide spacious living; creating a welcoming and comforting atmosphere, perfect for entertaining guests or taking time to relax with family.

Residents can benefit from the best of both worlds, with a lifestyle centred around buzzing Angel and creative Shoreditch, both of which are just a stone’s throw away. Wharf Road’s central location, exudes the essence of London. A simple stroll across the canal leads to Angel’s central mall and the world renowned Upper Street, perfect for all your shopping needs.

A commuters dream, Wharf road is within walking distance from Old Street, Kings Cross St Pancreas and Highbury & Islington stations, providing connections to the rest of the UK and beyond.

“I know this area really well, which is why I was so keen to stay put. I love living in the City as it is so convenient and the list of things to do is endless, especially in and around Islington – it’s one of the liveliest parts of town. There is a number of really good pubs local to me and I love the closeness to everything. The transport links are also great. I’m just a short walk away from Angel tube station and I’m not far from Kings Cross and St Pancras either.”
